A woman charged with performing sexual acts involving two pets and forcing a 6-year-old-boy to perform sex acts on her is back at work as a deputy director at the Centers for Disease Control.

Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, 44, is the deputy director of the CDC's Laboratory Science, Policy and Practice Program Office (LSPPPO). She is charged with multiple counts of child molestation and one count of bestiality, according to CBS affiliate WGCL in Atlanta. Lindsey was arrested October 10 following a six-week investigation by the DeKalb County police. Police say they unearthed evidence that a 6-year-old boy was involved in sex acts with Lindsey and her boyfriend Thomas Westerman, a fellow CDC employee who is also charged in the case. The child molestation allegedly took place between January and August of 2010 at Lindsey's home in Decatur, Ga.

Michigan law requires public officials to hold formal meetings out in the open and allow citizens to attend.

Despite this requirement, the University of Michigan Board of Regents routinely conducts its affairs behind close doors, away from public scrutiny. It is assumed that the regents and the president actually debate matters at these secret meetings. At the (sham) public meetings, the regents almost always vote unanimously in favor or against whatever proposals are on the table-with little debate-lending credibility to the charge that the real decisions are being made elsewhere. In the last year, the regents voted on 116 public matters, and only 8 of those times were there any dissenting votes.

Close to nineteen months have passed since the event known as the Sandy Hook Massacre transpired.

Amazingly, there has still been no conclusive evidence put forth by any of the families affected or the investigators involved to dispel the many 'conspiracy theories' that have evolved from the event. In fact, new mysteries seem to expose themselves even more as time passes by. From Douglas Cottle, who died Sept 29, 2012, at age 62 to Michael Bellmore, who died May 3, 2014 at age 27, more questions than answers seem to arise. The Connecticut State Police Commander, the Connecticut State Police Commissioner, the Western Connecticut State Police Commander as well as the Connecticut State Medical Examiner have all been eliminated from the story either by retiring or death. What better way to cover up any possibility of ever disclosing the truth ? What better way to perpetuate conspiracy theories?

Independent journalist Matthew Grunert was gathering footage for a film he was making.

He was photographing the NYS Police Academy - a campus of three publicly accessible buildings located next to the SUNY campus. Grunert was approached first by a female trooper who refused to identify herself. Later, Investigator Thompson (5257), Major Timothy Monroe (3423), and Trooper Smith (5286) detained Grunert despite him having committed no crime. He identifies himself to officers, explains why he was there, yet was still detained.

What libertarians have to explain to the politically disengaged and uninformed

If libertarians want to change how nonlibertarians think about government, they will need to understand how nonlibertarians think about government. By "nonlibertarians," I mean the majority of people who spend little if any time pondering political theory or what Murray Rothbard called political ethics. They may focus at times on particular government programs and actions, or on proposals for new programs, but rarely about government as an institution. This is not hard to understand. We all come into a world full of national governments that present themselves as providers of a social safety net, guarantors of products and services, protectors of workers, defenders of the national borders, and dispensers of benefits to an assortment of deserving groups (farmers, exporters, too-big-to-fail banks, low-income people, and so on). This is all represented as indispensable to the general welfare.

Dinosaurs may have gone extinct, but Internet stupidity hasn't.

The dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park" certainly looked real, but many Facebook users are mistaking the movie for real life. Facebook user Jay Branscomb uploaded a picture of Steven Spielberg sitting next to a Triceratops used in "Jurassic Park." Along with the photo, Branscomb posted the caption "Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man." And then the post exploded.

College campuses often seem culturally biased against non-liberals. But in some cases, political bias so deeply and obviously pervades official campus policy that no one can even defend it when challenged.

On that front, the Young Americans for Liberty declared victory in their legal battle with the University of Michigan after administrators agreed to pay out $14,000 and revise discriminatory funding policies. Last year, YAL asked the university for $1,000 to bring anti-affirmative action activist Jennifer Gratz to speak on campus. UM collects mandatory fees from all students and uses them to subsidize events hosted by recognized student groups. But the university has a stated policy of declining to fund events deemed "political." Though the Gratz event was merely a lecture on the history of the affirmative action issue-and was open to all students-UM considered it a political event and did not provide funds.

Depending on whom you ask, so-called "free energy devices" are either a total hoax or a systematically suppressed technology that's being kept away from the public. There's a lot of interesting ground to cover on this subject of "over unity devices."

If free energy technology were to be developed and openly shared with the world, it would very rapidly lead to runaway global warming. I don't mean by emitting greenhouse gasses because obviously such devices don't burn fossil fuels. What I mean is literal, actual WARMING: the production of heat that's released into the atmosphere. Joules and BTUs, in other words. Where would all this heat come from? From the work performed by the devices, obviously. And if these devices really produce energy from nothing (or from zero point energy, a parallel universe, or whatever), then they are introducing heat into this world that didn't exist here to begin with.

Over the weekend a detailed report in the Washington Post caught the U.S. government in more lies about the scope of it's dragnet surveillance programs.

The Post showed that the NSA intercepted communications from ordinary people 9 times more often than from "targets" suspected of any wrongdoing. People are outraged. And we should be. Any politician that plans to keep their job should be doing everything they can to put an end to these illegal and unethical surveillance practices. Infuriatingly, *tomorrow* the Senate Intelligence Committee is rushing to advance "CISA," a bill that would give the NSA more access to our data than ever before, and give companies like Facebook and Google legal immunity for violating our privacy.

"The fact that the government can and is eavesdropping on patrons in libraries has a chilling effect."

Using the broad powers granted under the USA PATRIOT Act, the FBI demanded that 4 librarians produce private information about library patrons' reading habits, then used an endless gag order to force them to remain silent about the request for the rest of their lives under penalty of prison time. In July 2005, two FBI agents came to the office of the Library Connection, located in Windsor, Connecticut. The Library Connection is a nonprofit co-op of library databases that arranges record-sharing between 27 different libraries. It facilitates book rental tracking and other services.
